supplement their income slightly and pushes us along the path for more sustainable food sources at a small level. supervisor chiu has long been interested in these issues. he carried a urban agricultural legislation in 2011 and looks forward to carrying further ag legislation when additional state law changes in the near future. the legislation also makes two changes related to accessory uses more generally. accessory uses essentially -- the secondary use, aside from whatever the primary and essential use of a particular site s in a residential situation, the accessory use in this instance would be cottage food. the other two general accessory use changes are extending the floor area allowed from quarter to a third. this is planning department's estimation of what is a more reasonable amount. particularly with cottage food, there was consideration of exempting the kitchen or having half the kitchen count. instead to make it cleaner and easier to enforce they're going with this recommendation of a third, a third of the square footage. and additionally right now, accessory use [speaker not u

i think there needs to be more awareness of how medical cannibalis is used and the neighborhoods. it's really limited. but my hope is that the committee could have time to look at this carefully, with stake hold groups raising awareness and raising awareness of medical cannibalis, and not just the health qualities of medical cannibalis. that's my concern. and it's important to give our planning department and commission enough time. i hope that the medical cannibalis task force is involved in this as well. i think there is lumping of medical marijuana with liquors and gambling as well. and it could lead to less understanding than more, i hope that you consider this as it moves forward. >> supervisor campos. >> thank you, i want to thank the supervisor and his staff and all the work in this item. and i know that all the members of the community, not just from this district, but other parts of the city. from within the cannibalis community that have opined this. i will be supporting item 23, and item 24. i do want to note that, i think there are differences between these two items.
drivers to drive cautiously and pedestrians when you're crossing the street to use caution. >> three deadly accidents involving people crossing the street in just two days. last night, a woman was killed crossing near monterey road and san jose avenue, when police say she was hit by a vehicle. the driver who hit her stayed and cooperated with investigators. >> the pedestrian appeared to be transient and was crossing the road in between the intersections. the driver of the vehicle did say she was wearing all dark clothing which made it very difficult to see her crossing the street. >> reporter: sunday night, a 15- year-old girl was killed near highland and white road after she was hit by a vehicle. san jose police say in both cases, the two victims were crossing the street, where they weren't supposed to. >> but that wasn't the case for little elijah. >> the little kid just died on the side of the road just crossing the street. it is wrong. >> reporter: the 3-year-old was in a stroller and in a cross walk. when he and two others were hit near washington elementary school. the little b
. >> the fed used to have reserves and one of the changes is that now they can pay it and they look at the new tool of the interest rate. >> and number of people to put this in context a number of people have been arguing one of the problems in terms of funding investment in the private sector is that the fed is taking the money out of the system by paying interest on reserves. i think there is very little evidence that that is the case created the design of the policy was primarily to make sure that there was control over the rate to keep the fund rate is much narrower than they had been. remember that as a time when it was all over the place. it seemed to have worked quite effectively, and i think the evidence to that policy is pretty positive. the evidence against it in terms of its long-term effect is minimal. that doesn't mean that it couldn't be used to harm the private sector by taking the money out of the economy because they have discretion on the rate by which it pays for those funds obviously by the race that would be too high you could do a lot of damage but i don't think there is
disinfection room where there is a 25,000 gallon sis tern. the rainwater receives minor treatment and is used to irrigate the building's trees and landscaping. >> when we're resues using water we have on-site, we're not purchasing new water and we're also not putting sewage down into the sewer system which is costs money. this is a demonstration project of 5,000 gallons a day. it is the beginning of understanding and feeling comfortable with this technology that can be scaled up into eco districts and community scale systems, campus-type systems where in those situations when the water is reused and the numbers are much higher, 50,000, 100,000, 200,000 gallons a day, imagine the savings on that that you're getting. you're not purchasing freshwater and you're not using the sewer and being charged appropriately. this wastewater processing and reuse technology is cutting edge. and although it's been successfully implemented in other cities, it will be one of the first such installations in an urban office building. >> here is a city agency that treats wastewater, but they send no wastewater to t
back. >> thank you for this report. i like the service availability map. i think it's going to help us inform the previous process that we were just talking about. i would like to hope that we could particularly emphasize that there has been efforts to deliberately provide service to places where it's most needed for people with disabilities and seniors. most people who are out to get us or hate us or forever reason wants us to fail, they'll fail. if i'm a wheelchair for a quarter of a mile, that's fine for you but not someone with a walker. it's important that we articulate that we say we're trying to deliver this service to four people with disabilities and we're addressing this concern as well. this is fantastic. thank you. >> thank you mr. flynn. we have a resolution. is there a motion on that? >> mr. chairman, the person who did want to address you have left but it appropriate to see if we have anyone. >> we have a resolution before you. is there a motion. >> second. >> all in favor say i. >> i. >> thank you very much. >> next item. >> it would be appropriate for you to ha
allowed to exist in residential areas as an accessory use. the provisions that allow this to exist are defined pretty clearly in state law. the city had some -- has some options in terms of how we're implementing it. this is what the planning department recommends. this item is at the planning commission this thursday. most specifically, the cottage food ordinance that's proposed allows for the sale -- for the production and sale of certain foodstuffs out of the home in a space up to a third of that space. and the reasons for this are that it provides some more healthier options, helps people supplement their income slightly and pushes us along the path for more sustainable food sources at a small level. supervisor chiu has long been interested in these issues. he carried a urban agricultural legislation in 2011 and looks forward to carrying further ag legislation when additional state law changes in the near future. the legislation also makes two changes related to accessory uses more generally. accessory uses essentially -- the secondary use, aside from whatever the primary and e

we are finding that it's useful because a lot of times there's a sense that the city's not doing enough to address homelessness, address crime, address those larger issues and so we have a point of contact and reference to work with, you know, on those larger issues. one of the things we also want to do is make sure we reach out to all communities so with the work of francis we're starting to reach out to the monolingual communities. >> [inaudible] enables us to work with pretty much most of the communities i think in the cross cultural situation.

here telling us there is heavy traffic in soma. >> let's walk there and then take a taxi or muni back. >> that new website gives us a lot of options. >> it sure does and we can use it again next weekend when we go to see the giants. there is a new destination section on the website that shows us how to get to at&t park. >> there is a section, and account alerts and information on parking and all kinds of stuff, it is so easy to use that even you can use it. >> that is smart. >> are you giving me a compliment. >> i think that i am. >> wow, thanks. >> now you can buy dinner. sfmta.com. access useful information, any >> good morning, everyone. thank you for being here. it's a beautiful day in san francisco. my name is joaquin torres the director of economic and work force development and the mayor's investing neighborhood initiative which is an office coordinates through out our neighborhood commercial services that our private partners bring to bear. it also includes something we realize in the city which is the central market economic strategy. one of those objectives is ensuring that
sell or can we add use restrictions to the selling for the disposition in the property management plan? >> well, i think that the whole point of doing all this is the state, you know, wants to get as much money as possible. and yes, it's true in this case the state wouldn't get any money because of the the cdbg restrictions, but in other cases where we brought properties before them, they've focused on are you getting -- even when it's restricted revenue, are you getting as much money as possible, and if there's not a use restriction on it, i think it would be difficult to apply a new use restriction on it because the state would look at that as us trying to purposely reduce the value. >> i think i -- the reason i asked that question is because i feel the garage parcel adds to the value of the enter social center itself. so if it can be sold to someone who is doing rental on another lot nearby and they choose to buy that garage and then they say this is only for residents or for this particular use, but not necessarily for the heritage center, i think that would lower value of the com

, and undocumented activist named ju hong joins us to talk about how obama's immigration policies have torn apart his family. then pope francis issues streaming -- stinging critique. we will speak with two dissident priests on the pope's radical economic message, perusal to alter church doctrine on abortion and female priests. the supreme court will hear a case over whether for-profit conversations -- corporations can exclude birth-control and health insurance they provide their employees under obamacare. all of that and more coming up. this is democracy now!, democracynow.org, the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. has agreed tourt take on cases that could decide of corporations can ignore parts of federal law raced on the religious police of their owners. the cases center on the controversy over whether for- profit corporations must fully cover birth control and health insurance they provide for their employees. two companies, hundred lobby and consetoga wood from object offer birthem to control. the case could force a rehashing of the landmark citizens united decision which ruled companies hav
of of us in the near future is to universalize the protocols. we are working on expanding the applications and implementation. 2009, joined the iaea in there were 93 countries that implemented the protocol. now 121 countries are implementing the protocols. additional protocols are to exclude the possibility of undeclared activities. we would like to see more countries that would adhere to the additional protocols. where else we could do more or not, i think that the priority for us is to universalize or expand the number of countries that implement the initial protocols. unfortunately, because the questions are excellent, we will break off questions now. r> dear little -- leade references are a little uncomfortable, but i -- i'm jane harman. before becoming president and ceo of the wilson center two and half years ago, i served as a member of congress for nine terms. i met with you in vienna as part of a delegation in january 2010 just after you have -- had assumed the responsibility as director general. we in congress at the time knew three things about you, and they still apply. number o
it to your attention, a lot of us here today work for the administration in this building which is actually is a pump station still in use that uses diesel pumps to pump the water from the ocean so it's not just a fire house, it's also us being exposed to diesel exhaust, and so with you mentioned this gal, rachel, is she the person who's not here today, or when you were talking about the air quality, having your air quality tested, and the odd thing is now a different agency runs and maintains these pumps that are right beneath us now so it gets kind of complicated, but i think i've been exposed, i worked at the airport for 11 years and then worked here, i have this exposure to diesel smell that you don't notice it here, i do notice it frequently, and so when you mention this gal rachel. >> so, just before this, we had a meeting because we're working on hopefully building a study to look at exposures among women in the fire course to understand what they're exposed to, this raises a really interesting kind of unique sub population within that, she is an environmental health scientist and ha
of location. for those of us who have second jobs, and i can't take my mom to the hospital all of the time, and the laguna hospital is right on the hill, and the public transportation, will only get you to the bottom of the hill, you have to go through flights of stairs in order to get up there, that is very hard for the dialysis patient to do and it is even tough for a normal person like me to go up there. and i am sure, that you can imagine how hard it is for the dialysis patients. >> second point, translator, like i said before, i can't be there to translate for my mom all of the time and on top of that, we are not professional translaters, and there are times when we need to rely on the translator to help us to get our points across. we are grateful that the clinic was able to provide one for us. i am not sure that laguna hospital can do that for us. and also, emergency has a lot of patients point out. and lastly, and the most important thing of all, san francisco general hospital, has the best medical team who really care about the well-being of the patients. and so why would we want
property that would identify a specific use for a redevelopment plan, then in that case it has to be transferred to the city. i have been keeping those, we have kept those in mind as we have discussed these properties internally and physical figuring out what the best plan is for all of these and we'll be producing these to you today. first the transbay parcels and what we are talking about here is one that we own now, we only own one, it's block 11b which is purple. and then we have options to purchase in the if the two other park parcels and block 10 in the corner. so like i said i'm not going through the enforceable obligation discussion because there is a lot of information in your memo and if you have questions i will answer. i'm going skip right to the disposition plan for those. for 11b and 3, so for parks, 11 b and 3. we have the same disposition. we would basically just retain those temporarily to fulfill our development obligation. we would ensure that they are developed as parks and then once they are developed as parked we transfer them to the city and the city woul
. >> good morning. >> tell us a little bit about your program. >> we started the program about a year ago. it is actually an episcopal church. >> okay. >> it was a little emergency food pantry. we took it over. we knew we had to keep it running. as soon as we began to talk with the food bank, we realized -- they told us we were at the center of hunger. and that rfid bank has the potential to feed a lot more people. so they asked us to go to the client choice of model, which is a model open to diversity. we began to switch out our model. and very quickly, we grew up to -- about 220 families. and the families average between four and five people. from 1-year-old 27 years old -- up to seven years old. >> we mentioned the hunger. and that food stamps are being cut back. will that affect you? >> we are expecting that to affect us quite a bit. the food pantry picks up at the end of the month, when money runs out. although we are busy all month long. we have this one day a week on wednesday. and, yes, there are large families. we have only been going for one year. we don't know exactly wh
with us and we don't have the wherewithal to finish some 5,000 units, does that obligation at any point transfer to the successor housing agency to complete. >> we haven't gotten to that point. we just submitted our request to the state to establish the obligation with the state. that's before them now so that's step one is to have the state finally determine that there is a replacement housing obligation and then i think we go from there. >> got it. >> as a part of that determination, determining there is a statutory obligation, we need a /soeurs of funds so that's the funding stream so in those redevelopment plan areas where the program is complete, golden gateway, south beach, now there's ability after death service to be able to use the additional head room in that tax increment for this tax purpose so we've built approximately close to 1,000 today, but about 6,000 still exist, so it's the obligation and funding stream. if the city were to accept the obligation, it would have to identify a funding stream so it would be unwise for the city to accept the obligation without a sou
to be transferred to the city for governmental use that were /orpblly going to be sold in the open market and previous drafts, first one being building 218. originally the goal was to sell to private developer who would own and manage. tracy, can you just quickly discuss why the governmental use approach or transfer to the city approach is a better route? >> will, i think partly -- again, not arguing the governmental purpose. we're arguing kind of an enforceable obligation and we have an enforceable obligation that these were part of the community facilities broadly identified as community facilities in the phase two. we felt that was a stronger argument when we went back and looked again at the phase 2dda and the redevelopment plan which specifically kind of envisions that there are going to be these community facilities that have a public purpose. therefore they should -- we feel that's a strong argument to keep them in the city's -- transfer them to the city and artist studios and keeping the rents at cost. which the dda says rents can only be charged to cover expenses. and having the
development of mildew and wherever you paint. do you use mildew sides in paints? >> we mix it in with primer. >> especially good for bathrooms? ok, good. we're going to look a little more at inside bathrooms. scrubbing it off, definitely. here's a hinge, an exterior hinge. it looks like it is rusting in certain areas of the hinge which are not designed for weather exposure. exterior metal is a serious, serious problem. here's a hinge which is solid stainless steel. so stainless steel or brass or bronze or, you know, other similar materials which are designed to be exposed to weather are what you have to use for exterior. if you use anything that has galvanized or other it will -- unless -- thank you, unless it's hot dipped galvanize it will rust. people say it's galvanized but it's what they call electroplated galvanized. maybe it lasts for -- yeah. so, for exterior use, it's almost always wort the extra cost to use, you know, stainless steel bronze, brass or certainly hot tipped ga have a niesed at the lowest -- galvanized at the lowest cost and don't use an interior hardw
a short time ago. ktvu's alex savidge was there and joins us live with what led deputies to the suspects and what the victims' family said today at the announcement. good afternoon, alex. >> reporter: well, good afternoon. the victims' family has waited a lon time for this. they tell me they never gave up hope. it's been more than two decades in this case. it's been a lot of frustration, a lot of despair for this family but they are glad with the work that the cold case detectives have put in, in this case and finally, they say, the man accused of killing their beloved father, the two people accused of killing their beloved father, both behind bars. >> we're pretty overwhelmed at the moment. very surreal. not like something can tell you what to expect when this happens. we waited a long, long time. >> reporter: that's tammy borha. she's the victim's father. he was found dead in the east bay hills back in 1990. the homicide was originally investigated by the east bay regional parks police. investigators at the time zeroed in on the victim's ex- wife, sheryl ann dras, and her lover, willia
and the incredible advocacy and teaching that you do for all of us to ensure we are serving the community to the best of our ability. now we have one of our best supervisors jane kim. >> base guitarist. my first show was at the shop many years ago. speaking about the arts in the 2000 i cofounded a space here in san francisco in south of market. i remember having a performance arts space, we moved three times in 6 years and finding spaces to support them was in incredibly challenging during that time. we were eventually able to share spaces through other arts organizations, but i do remember how important permanent physical space was. that's why it's so exciting to be here 13 years later to celebrate the acquisition of two very important buildings here in the tenderloin and mid-market for two organizations that have held strong in the mid-market area for a long time and that's leading and -- luggage store gallery, i want to recognize mr. smith and jessica from counter paul. it's so fun to be able to kind of switch roles as our arts community grows. i remember going to the intersection of the arts and

driving a vehicle equipped for use by hand control. part of what we need to make you clear of is description of the problem, then the process we went through, our recommendations and next steps. we want to increase access to parking for people with disabilities, as well as decrease the parking placard abuse or misuse. in gentleman is driving a vehicle equipped with hand controls, has the placard. his problem is not his limitations or his disable. his problem is finding a parking space. people who have disabilities, we can't find the parking we need when we need it close to our destination. that's because current parking policies and state legislation failed to increase access to convenient parking for people with disabilities. in context, the california state law is very, very broad and maybe even outdated. a person displaying a placard has the right to park for any unlimited amount of time without any payment at any green zone that you merchants pay for. we'll address some of that in our recommendations. now on the screen you'll see a list of the stakeholders. the na
